Colorado Tech Weekly #76: A tech drive and 100 companies

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

“Hi” to everyone I met at the RefactorU job fair! It was a good event. I highly suggest anyone looking into changing careers into tech to go to a job fair and ask questions. It’s amazing how helpful recruiters are. It makes sense though, the better prepared job-seekers are the easier it should be for recruiters.

Please make sure you check out the link to the Open World Learning tech drive! I was excited to see that most of the companies listed in the Top 100 digital employers post have been mentioned in Colorado Tech Weekly. For those I haven’t mentioned, I’m looking forward to learning about you!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Colorado Tech Weekly #54: $53.1M of funding, some rare bad news and the best network of IT women in the country

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

I’m excited about the strong, growing network of IT women in Colorado. The National Center for Women & Information Technology is based in Boulder. CTA’s Women in Tech event was a big success. There is a GDI (Girl Develop It) Boulder chapter and a newly launched GDI Fort Collins chapter (but no GDI Denver chapter yet?). Things are looking good for my 10 year old daughter who wants to follow in, and improve upon, her father’s footsteps.
